Brethren, our next two regularly stated meeting would occur on the week of Thanksgiving and the week of Christmas.  The Valley of Fayetteville will remain dark until the new year and our stated meetings will resume on 24 January, 2024.  However, that does not mean that the Valley will be silent.  As it has become somewhat of a tradition, there will be an informal gathering on Wednesday 22 November.  This time will be use for fellowship and the opportunity to break bread with your masonic family before the holiday season.  As of now, I do not have the menu but I'm assured it will be an excellent meal (green beans withstanding).  I hope to see you there but if not, have a very happy holiday season and I will see you at the lodge hall soon!
